  1. Philadelphia Spectrum goes under the wrecking ball

    Nov 23, 2010, 1:59 PM EST

    Moses Malone and Julius Erving watch the game

    It was where Dr. J soared, where Charles Barkley banged and balled, where the fans were close and let the players know it. From both teams. It’s where the Philadelphia Flyers pummeled everyone they could, where more concerts took place than can be remembered. And now, the Philadelphia Spectrum is no more. Today a wrecking…

  2. Kobe Bryant calls Michael Jackson his mentor

    Nov 23, 2010, 12:44 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Kobe Bryant is a complex man. We like to paint our athletes into easy to define boxes — Kobe learned his drive by watching Michael Jordan — that are not always accurate fit. They often are not with Kobe. For example, he told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo he learned his drive by his friendship with…

  3. Report: Jerry Stackhouse ends up man on the outside in Miami

    Nov 23, 2010, 12:02 PM EST

    Stackhouse_heat

    The Miami Heat needed to cut somebody loose to bring in Erick Dampier — and they need to bring in Dampier — the only question was who? Jerry Stackhouse. That according to a tweet from Chris Broussard at ESPN (something other sources have confirmed now). It also makes sense, even though other names (Dexter Pittman…

  4. Larry Drew thinks Hawks may be more into partying than playing

    Nov 23, 2010, 11:12 AM EST

    Larry Drew and Josh Smith

    The Boston Celtics came into Atlanta on the second night of a back-to-back and played with a Hoover Dam’s worth of more electricity and energy than their hosts. The Celtics were pissed about losses, the Hawks were… We don’t know. Hawks coach Larry Drew doesn’t know. But in some of the most direct post-game comments…

  5. Jarrett Jack says look at Miami before you think Chris Paul is New York bound

    CPaul_Heat

    While the entire league is enjoying a bit of schadenfreude at the Miami Heat’s expense Tuesday morning, Jarrett Jack — the newest member of the Hornets — was warning that the slow start in South Beach could be viewed as a cautionary tale by players. After the Miami Heat formed Voltron this summer, there was…

  6. Tom Thibodeau helped make Kobe Bryant the player he is today

    Thibodeau_Bryant

    Tonight the Chicago Bulls roll into Los Angeles and Kobe Bryant will try to do to them what he does to every team that rolls through — mercilessly destroy them. But Kobe likely would not be in this position, not be the player he is today, without Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. In a fascinating story…

  7. Hornets are winning and Chris Paul says he’s happy

    Nov 23, 2010, 8:50 AM EST

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    Everything looks better when you are 11-1. Your teammates are funnier, the baskets look bigger, your legs are fresher, the Gatorade doesn’t taste like flavored sweat, and your front office and coach can do no wrong. So no shock that Chris Paul says he’s happy now, like he told FanHouse. Sure, his people were pushing…

  8. LeBron’s ridiculous shot

    Nov 23, 2010, 8:10 AM EST

    LeBron James

    The Heat lost and looked bad doing it. We can talk about that some more, gloat if you want to. Just go ahead and pretend they are never going to figure this all out and start crushing teams. In the mean time, we can still enjoy the ridiculous athlete that is LeBron James, who continues…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the Spurs are legit

    What you missed while freaking out that there are flying snakes… The Clippers with the upset of the Hornets is our Game of the Night… Spurs 106, Magic 97: The Spurs are legit. Not sure they can beat the Lakers in the playoffs, but if that’s the standard then no other team in the NBA…

  10. Game of the Night: Clippers keep Paul in check, stun Hornets

    Nov 23, 2010, 2:35 AM EST

    Eric Bledsoe, Chris Paul

    Well, that was unexpected. Monday’s game was supposed to be more of a welcome-to-the-Hornets party for new acquisition Jarrett Jack, but an actual basketball game ended up taking place between the 11-1 Hornets and the 1-13 Clippers. That’s surprising enough; the stunning thing is that the Clippers actually ended up winning the game. The Hornets…

  11. Vince Carter leaves game feeling “sharp pain” in knee

    Vince Carter was one of the few Magic players attacking the basket against the San Antonio Spurs. He drove again with 5:24 left in the fourth quarter, made a spin-move layup, landed a awkwardly injuring his left knee and soon after left the game for good. No report yet on how severe the injury is,…

  12. Dampier to sign one-year deal with Heat Tuesday

    Nov 22, 2010, 11:00 PM EST

    dampier

    Watching the Miami Heat lose to the Indiana Pacers Monday night, it became clear they need something. We’ll see if Erick Dampier can be part of that something. Multiple reports have the Miami Heat offering a one-year, minimum deal to Dampier (Ken Berger of CBS was first with this). He is expected to sign it…

  13. Quote of the Night: Monty Williams on Blake Griffin

    Nov 22, 2010, 10:13 PM EST

    Griffin Dunk

    “We treat [Blake Griffin] like an All-Star. He can have those kinds of games all the time. We don’t treat him any differently than we would treat Amar’e Stoudemire. Those guys, you have to guard with team defense instead of one guy. He’s talented and explosive. The future’s bright here in L.A.” – Hornets coach…

  14. Players Association Exec Hunter “99 percent sure” there will be lockout

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    Right now it’s all posturing — more for the general public than each other — but it still sounds ominous. The latest in the public back-and-forth over a new NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement is what Billy Hunter, executive director of the NBA Players Association (the players union) told the Associated Press. He said he was…

  15. With Haslem out, will LeBron see more time at the four?

    Nov 22, 2010, 7:45 PM EST

    LeBron Post

    Udonis Haslem going down with a torn foot ligament is very bad for the Miami Heat means that the Miami Heat are going to have to make some tough calls regarding their rotation in the coming weeks. Allow me to offer this thought: instead of giving Haslem’s minutes to Juwan Howard, Jamaal Magloire, or increasing…

  16. Jamal Crawford is in a contract year and that’s a bad thing.

    Nov 22, 2010, 7:26 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Often, guys have record years when they are playing for a new contract (or at least they are more aggressive and take more shots, so their point total goes up). It is having the opposite impact on Jamal Crawford. Cawford this season has not been the same guy who won the Sixth Man of the…

  17. Heat likely to sign Erick Dampier while Haslem will have surgery on foot

    Nov 22, 2010, 5:54 PM EST

    Erick Dampier

    Just as the news becomes official that Udonis Haslem will have foot surgery and be out for months, word of his replacement comes in. The Heat are very close to signing Erick Dampier to a contract, according to Marc Stein at ESPN. Dampier had worked out for the Heat this summer and hinted that is…

  18. Raptors rookie Davis sent to D-league for rehab assignment

    Nov 22, 2010, 5:00 PM EST

    NBA Draft Basketball

    Toronto forward Ed Davis, who was the 13th overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft, has been assigned to the Erie Bayhawks of the D-League for what the Raptors are calling a “short-term rehabilitation and conditioning stint.” A knee injury has prevented the UNC product from making his NBA debut.

  19. Wall practices, still questionable for Tuesday’s game

    Nov 22, 2010, 4:33 PM EST

    John Wall Practice Dance

    According to Craig Stouffer of the Washington Examiner, Wizards rookie guard John Wall practiced today with the team, but coach Flip Saunders says he wants to “see how his foot reacts to practice” before playing him against the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday. Wall is currently averaging an extremely impressive 18.1 points, 9.8 assists, and 3.3…

    Have the color adjusted on your sets because things are going to go much brighter when the Denver Nuggets travel to Golden State tonight. Chris Anderson is back, recovered from knee surgery. The Birdman. He of the insane neck tattoo and the high flying blocks. Really, it’s the second part of that can dramatically help…
